State of Matter Quiz Review. Density. A measure of how much matter is in a certain volume. Density = Mass/Volume. Elasticity. When we hang a weight on a spring, the spring stretches. When we remove the weight, the spring returns to its original length. We say the spring is elastic.
A measure of how much matter is in a certain volume.
Density = Mass/Volume
When we hang a weight on a spring, the spring stretches. When we remove the weight, the spring returns to its original length.
We say the spring is elastic.
The amount of stretch (or compression), x is directly proportional to the applied force F.
Double the force and double the stretch; triple the force and we get three times the stretch, and so on.
compression, decrease in volume of any object or substance resulting from applied stress (force).
The act or process of stretching something tight.
The upward force that a fluid exerts on an object less dense than itself
A liquid exerts a pressure against the walls and bottom of its container, just as a block exerts a pressure against the table.
A floating object displaces a weight of fluid equal to its own weight.
Changes in pressure at any point in an enclosed fluid at rest are transmitted undiminished to all points in the fluid in all directions.
The pressure of the liquid is the same at any given depth below the surface, regardless of the shape of the container.
An immersed object is buoyed up by force equal to the weight of the fluid it displaces.
(General Physics) the principle that the pressure of a gas varies inversely with its volume at constant temperature.
High Pressure Low volume
Low Pressure High volume
The principle that the volume of a given mass of an ideal gas is proportional to its temperature as long as its pressure remains constant.
Increase temperature Increase pressure Increasevolume.
Avogadro's Law is the relation which states that at the same temperature and pressure, equal volumes of all gases contain the same number of molecules.
Bernoulli’s Principle in its simplest form states: When the speed of a fluid increases, the pressure drops
